DTC Scanner

Does anyone know of a Scanner that will read all the systems/DTC for 2015+ W205. Not looking for any star clone, just a quality handheld or Bluetooth adapter. Most Mercedes scanners I found have limited coverage for the W205. I use the Carsoft MI6 for anything up to 2015 with great success. But can't seem to find any update past that year. Any experience or suggestions would be appreciated.

I recently got the Kitbest Blutooth from Amazon for about $10.

( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 )

It works with many free Android apps. I downloaded the Torque Light free version. And it works great on my 1999 C280.

I have not tired on my 2015 C300 as there is no CEL code to check.

Try it, it is only $10 and report your results to the forum

I did try the Bluetooth adapters with Torque. Not the above one, but similar. It didn't get any codes from all the system ECU's. My scans showed no stored errors. I just got the Foxwell NT520 scanner for Mercedes two days ago and it found error codes for Keyless-Go, Collision avoidance, PanaRoof, Command Comms and LED Headlights. Car went to Benz yesterday and they are updating the software for those systems. Got the scanner on eBay for about 155.00. Well worth the money. Not only did it save me from getting stranded (collision avoidance and keyless-go errors have shutdown other cars), it has paid for itself with finding these errors before my warranty ends. Thanks
